On the day we hear that our queen video-maker, Magdalen, has died, it feels all the more poignant to be posting the first video I’ve ever set out to produce on youtube. If you can’t wait to see it, scroll down.
Two years ago today, I was assaulted by vicious nasty male trans activists, at Speakers’ Corner. Two days later a woman I’d never heard of before wrote a poem about the event. I wish somebody had told me about that poem at the time. It would have made a pleasant change from the screenshots of all the hate I was getting, blaming me for provoking or even starting the violence – single-handedly, of course – against a bunch of thugs in their 20s, whose sole purpose in coming to Speakers’ Corner had been to bully and harass a group of people waiting to go to a meeting about proposed changes to legislation.
